Taped at the historic Warner Theater in Washington D.C., this sold out concert is twice the length of the Comedy Central broadcast, with exclusive extras, featuring "The Making of Melvin," "What Would You Put on a Stick?" and a surprise political announcement from Walter!
Spark of Insanity (Blu-ray) is the ultimate event special from one of comedy's most inventive minds.

I thought this DVD was funnier than the "Arguing with Myself" one. I loved the Dead Terrorist. This program aired on Comedy Central and the DVD features some additional footage that didn't appear on Comedy Central. The bonus features on the DVD are great. It was interesting to see the development of Melvin, and Walter's "announcement" was fabulous. This DVD is a must have for any fan of Jeff and gang.
I am a changed curmudgeon.
Ladies and gents, this is funny, funny stuff, and I'm not talking about chuckling funny--I'm talking about rolling on the floor funny. Dunham and his "suitcase posse" of colorful characters (and an old curmudgeon like me sure appreciates Walter) tackle a plethora of topics--many of them devoutly controversial. But Dunham (and friends) gets away with controversy, because everything is fair game and no one is spared. Heck, forget the puppets; Dunham's opening monologue is hysterical.
When a comedian can make his audience forget their troubles and just enjoy the entertainment for its own sake, said comedian has achieved pure comedic bliss. And Jeff Dunham does just that; SPARK OF INSANITY is well worth the viewing, time and time again.

What it boils down to, is this (and its very simple): This is one of the funniest and most tallented stand-up acts I have ever seen. You have your all-time greats like Pryor and (fill in your fav here) but did they hold three-way conversations at lightning speed and legibly conveying three unique voices with three different personalities? Either he has incredible tallent or he's related to Emily Rose.
In short, its fantastic - Excellent - pullamuscle funny - and man does it deliver. I saw him LIVE in May at the comedy club Stardome in Alabama, and this dvd is just as good. Highly recommended for you adults who need a change in pace. ~saos~
I gotta be honest and admit to cringing a little - I had NO idea where that was going to go. But darn if he didn't pull it off. Very very funny... his catch-phrase in particular was hysterical... then those piercing eyes and over-the-top attitude which you couldn't possibly take seriously... amazingly creative (and bold).
So I hadn't seen this new character before. Another thing new (to me anyway) was the way Jeff Dunham did a bit of standup beforehand, just standing there talking to the audience long before he pulled out the fellas.
Melvin was my least favorite character, and I don't think he appeared in any of Jeff Dunham's shows after this. He did have one really funny line, however. When Jeff asked him how far could he fly, Melvin answered, "How far can you throw me?"
Achmed the Dead Terrorist is the star of the show, and he's the best character of all of Jeff's "friends." Note: I have a "Silence! I keel you" t-shirt, and almost everyone who sees it recognizes the phrase. That's how well known Achmed is.
One thing that I really enjoyed about this and other Jeff Dunham shows: he's not afraid of being politically incorrect. Or to be precise, his characters aren't. And I like that in a puppet.
As with his other shows, Jeff begins with a monologue before bringing his characters out of the suitcase. It's some pretty funny stuff, but the real show starts when the characters come out and Jeff demonstrates his superb ventriloquist skills. I have literally almost passed out laughing, he's that funny.
The DVD also includes special features that are very good.
If you've never seen a Jeff Dunham show, I recommend that you try "Spark of Insanity" first. In my opinion, it's his best show.
